If you have recently become a resident in the small village of Swanton in north-western Ohio then you may be disappointed with the lack of sports facilities in the place itself. However, it is situated in a beautiful location which makes it ideal for those who enjoy outdoor activities but if you prefer exercising in a group or getting involved in a sporting team then you may have to look beyond the village itself.
The city of Toledo is just a short drive from Swanton and this thriving city has lots to offer those who are seeking opportunities for sport and exercise including the Laurel Hill Swim & Tennis Club on Cass Road. This has been established in the city since 1965 and offers all the best tennis, swimming and social activities for you and your family to get involved in. The facilities are first class and include organized programs and classes, as well as professional coaching and lessons for both adults and children of all ages – including U10’s – whatever your level of proficiency. The club also has racquetball facilities In addition the club regularly holds member events such as picnics and parties for everything from the 4th of July to Halloween and Christmas, which bring families together regularly plus the facilities are available to hire for private parties too. The Brookwood Swim & Tennis Club is a similar establishment that is located in West Dean Road, in Temperance.
For those who prefer going to the gym or attending an exercise class to work out, then there are also several gymnasiums and fitness centres in the area that may be of interest to you including the most local one, Club Fitness on Dodge Street.

If the hours do not suit your professional life then you may have to travel a bit further afield and the city of Toledo has many alternatives including the Powerhouse Gym which is on West Central Avenue. This is an international name that now has premises in 39 states including Ohio so it has come along way since it was founded by three brothers from nearby Michigan back in 1975.
